 This bear greeted me when I was approaching my campsite at the Silver King Creek. I was heading down to my old campsite nestled by the Silver King Creek, and I was still high up on the Eastern Ridge above the ford, when I noticed this guy cruising around the flat near where both a tributary cut into the Silver King, and my trail fords it.

 

I stopped, stayed quiet, and took a bunch of pictures. But after a half-hour, I really wanted to get water, set up camp, and eat. So I made enough noise to let the bear notice me, but he was not impressed, and had little reaction. Then I made some loud, aggressive noises, and started down the trail towards the bear, throwing rocks and telling him to get the #$@% out of my camp site.

The bear wanted no part of that. He shot up the arm of the Southern ridge that reached down to the ford, which distressed me somewhat, as it was quite a climb, and I hate to have wild things waste precious energy on my account. But it was the quickest and most secure route away from me, and I understood.

 

So that's the story of how this guy became the site's logo, and also the basis for this site's favicon.
